Praying from Matthew 19:5. Themes: Marriage, Unity, Family

Dear God, thank you for the beautiful gift of marriage. Help us to remember that when we enter into this covenant, we are leaving behind our old lives and becoming one with our spouse. May we always strive to honor and cherish each other, putting our relationship with our spouse above all others. Guide us in building a strong and lasting marriage that reflects your love and grace. Amen.
